Division of Emergency Medicine
First off, thank you for your interest in the Emergency Medicine Residency Program here at MUSC! These are exciting times to be at MUSC, and we are all proud to be a part of such a capable and progressive team!
It is hard to believe, but our residency program is now heading into our sixth year. Our Division had another overwhelmingly successful match this year. Once again we had a huge amount of interest in our program and, as always, our interview team did a wonderful job of reviewing the applications, conducting the interviews, compiling the rank list, etc. We received 814 applications and interviewed 116 excellent candidates. With that, we would like to welcome our Class of 2015: Stephanie Bailey, MD (University of Toledo), E. Page Bridges, MD (University of North Carolina), Celia Cheung, MD (University of South Carolina), Jon Jennings, MD (Medical University of South Carolina), Rachel Scott, MD (University of Washington), and Blake Willis, MD (Medical College of Georgia).
Our graduating Class of 2012 will be practicing emergency medicine around the United States. Kevin Carpenter, MD, will be working at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine. Eric Chapman, MD, will be working at NCH Healthcare System in Naples, Florida. Brock Helms, DO, will be heading to work for Carolinas Healthcare System in Charlotte, North Carolina. Keenan Carpenter, MD, will be joining her husband Kevin at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine. Paul Riehle, MD, will be working at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Panama City, Florida. Scott Witt, MD, will be staying in the Palmetto State and will be working for the Greenville Hospital System in Greenville, South Carolina.
Despite these difficult economic times, we continue to grow and excel clinically and academically. We are in the final planning stages of our next full Emergency Department renovation, and the renovations have already begun. The process will take almost two years since we will be renovating in place, but we will have a new state-of-the-art Emergency Department, with room to handle projected growth, teaching, and research for years to come.
Research continues to expand, despite the unfavorable climate, we continue to be awarded new grants and new research dollars.
